Everyday is a great day at The Thrift Spot! Even for the volunteers it is so exciting to see what we have been given each week. It’s what makes the shopping experience so exciting for our customers. We have so many regulars that come every single week because they do not want to miss what’s new. Currently we have lots of Halloween décor as well as costumes for both children and adults. Just this week we received some very nice jewelry and it would make awesome Christmas gifts. Less than 100 days away you know! We are open each Saturday of the year from 8 to 4 (with the exception of the Saturday after Christmas and the first Saturday in August). Hope to see you this Saturday.
Today was an exceptional day for our food pantry. Over 15 volunteers provided food for 70 families. Six of these families came to the pantry for the first time today. The need in our community continues to grow. We are pleased to have
provide food for 196 people.
We had an excellent day at the pantry serving 52 families or 148 people. We had plenty of volunteers and food and, in addition, $55 was donated to PGO. Also, we gave away 540 pounds of additional food donated by Wythe Distributing.
It was a great day,

It’s that fun time of the year again, SUMMER! Everyone’s thinking vacations, fun, ways to cool off, what to do with the kids…better yet what to do with the kids that won’t break the bank. Well, here is your answer. On August 3, you can enjoy the Jenna Bash Festival on the grounds of Tabernacle UMC. It will be a day of fun for the whole family with our carnival style event.
